Goodbye Autumn

I know, it's only October 30th! But the reality is, once this week is over I will be in full-on Christmas mode. We have a Halloween party this Saturday and then I'm allowing myself to get all giddy with Christmas plans, decorations, lists, movies, baking, etc. I want to stretch out the Christmas season for as long as I can and 2 months seems about right for me. So I feel like I'm closing the Autumn chapter in my life this week.

In celebration of the wonderful Fall we had (because let's be honest, we've been hitting -5 degree weather here and I cannot call that Autumn), I though I'd share a couple of posts that I wrote for the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club website.

Favourite Autumn items:


1. Forest Friends Woodland Pillow by Savage Seeds
I've been a fan of Savage Seeds' adorable pillows for years now. These leaves completely won me over though. They'd be so cute to have out in the living room during the Fall months.

2. Cunning Hat by knerdsworld
The description on Etsy says it all "This hat has nothing to do with the best show ever. Nothing at all. Its just cunning is all." A hat to cover your ears is necessary when there's cold wind and this hat rocks!

3. Always Harry Potter Pullover Hoodie by parenholly
Click on the link and check out the back of this hoodie.... done? How awesome is this? I'd wear it every day!

4. Cafe Cutie Skirt by

I fell in love with the colours of this skirt first and then the print second. It's so pretty and I think it would be lovely paired with tights and a cardigan during the cold months.

5. Adventure Time Lumpy Space Princess Leggings by
Hot Topic

Not only am I huge fan of Adventure Time, but LSP is my favourite character on the show. These leggings are great because even though they're covered with LSPs, it's still only two colours. They're not 'in your face'.

6. Multicolor Animals Mug by

DAVIDsTEA is amazing. I have more teas from them than I'd like to admit. I also have a couple of their perfect tea mugs. Their new designs for Fall are to die for though. I want to buy more just for the prints.

Fun Halloween finds:


1. Laboratory Shot Glasses by ThinkGeek
I think these are the cutest shot glasses and I'd love to have them on my shot glass shelf all year round! But they're the perfect addition to any Halloween party. 

2. Pumpkin Earrings by Inspired Theory
These earrings are so pretty and perfect to wear throughout Autumn. They're something subtle to wear on Halloween to the office. 

3. Ouija Board Skirt by Toot Sweet Skirts
This skirt is absolute perfection! The pattern and style is amazing! I'd definitely wear this to a Halloween party and wear a planchette piece around my neck on a necklace. 

4. Endoskeletal Hand Jive Skirt by ModCloth
Another wonderful skirt to wear on Halloween or to a party! 

5. Blue Power Ranger Tunic by We Love Fine
I think all these geeky tunics that are popular right now are such an easy way to dress up on Halloween. Pair this tunic with some blue leggings and put an ass kicking look on your face, and you're set!

6. Creature Eyes Lollipops by Designer Lollipop
These lollipops are so awesome! If you were having a small Halloween gathering, you could give these out to all your guests. I'm not sure if I'd be able to eat such a masterpiece though. 

I know the U.S. still has Thanksgiving next month which would definitely make me celebrate the Autumn season longer, but after Halloween here, Christmas is the next big family holiday. I unfortunately have to work tomorrow evening but I plan on sitting down afterwards with Ghostbusters and some discounted mini chocolate bars! 

Happy Early Halloween!
